FC6 126.96.36.199 telnet server error: Name or service not known: Illegal seek
I've installed the telnet server .RPM that comes with FC6. However, if anybody tries to telnet into the server (including if I try to telnet in as non-root to 127.0.0.1) I get the following:
[rylan@StefanLinux ~]$ telnet 127.0.0.1
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.
getaddrinfo: localhost: Success
Name or service not known: Illegal seek
Connection closed by foreign host.
I. e. comes up via xinetd, but how can I solver the Name or service unknown error so I can actually telnet into my system? IPtables and SELinux is disabled - I can't find a reference to this "name or service unknown" error for telnet anywhere on the net...
How can I solve this?
